Rotating shifts for the most but this does depends which area you work in. You can plan around these I find. Overtime optional. Busy site producing some great snacks. Team work surrounds the values of the site however like everywhere you get good and bad, you choose how you want to be. Week 1 is spent with the training team and then you go into your areas's with a line Buddy. Great benefits, Holidays, pension, pay, staff shop, give aways, free zoo passes. Opportunities to get involved with many other teams, V&B's , Quality , safety and so on. Progression available if you are prepared to put into the work to get it. Currently going through changes with investment into the site.
Pros
Pay, Pension, Free Zoo passes, staff shop, subsidised canteen
Cons
Can get hot in summer, cold in the winter. You smell of flavour when you leave for the day

A mixed bunch of people, some fabulous people. Hard work does pay off here.
However proceed with caution, when they are done with you, they really are done with you. Bit of a click.

Rely only on yourself

After saying that good pay and good welfare facilities.

Opportunity to develop.
Pros
Good pay and good welfare facilities
Cons
Clicky

I worked for KP for around 13 years. I started by sweeping the floor in the frying room, and ended up as a Raw Materials & Process manager through sheer hard work and determination to make a career at the company until I was made redundant in October 2003. Unfortunately, there are one or two managers who would benefit from a man management training course as some had very bad attitudes,but overall, most were OK. Opportunities to progress were there when I was,so it was up to the individual to how far they progressed. I would return there in a heartbeat. I could still run someone through a full production process 17 years after being made redundant.
Pros
Good canteen. Excellent team work. Some Managers know their stuff
Cons
High sickness levels putting pressure on other team members.

The line I worked on got dismantled, I applied for an internal job in the warehouse and did not get it, I ended up as a general dogs body, so left the company.

Management clueless hr oc health and discusting putting people lives at risk giving medical advice for serious illness. Dirty place where food is made in process cross contamination flavour etc rodents birds rats etc in production area alot. I would never buy or eat products from there after working there it's shocking. Out dated company with lazy workers cutting corners from management to team members

On the surface seems the best company plenty of mental health first aiders but why? The reason I can see is working in certain departments at KP is very stressful. The work load is way to much and you are expected to get it done even if it means working at home. The home life balance is not good . A job working in the shop floor is probably the best place to work as good breaks and staff to help out although getting a holiday is difficult

Fantastic company to work for, the only problem was that it was a temporary job and they could not offer permenant positions.

I would work there again if a permenant job became available.

Awkward working hours, but then that's factory work. Good cameraderie amongst colleagues. Fairly relaxed management. Tries to be progressive but not always with success.

Regular shift patterns so it was easy to make plans around them. Always something to do, so was never bored on the job and the salary was good for the job specification.
